Bob Osborne, Windsor Lake
Bob Osborne was born and raised in St. John’s, the oldest of six children. He has lived and worked in St. John’s his whole life. He and his wife, Pam, celebrated 30 years of marriage in July 2018.
Bob has had a long career working for the city of St. John’s for over 30 years with the Assessment Department, currently as a Senior Assessor. He holds a Professional Designation from the Appraisal Institute of Canada and is the current Chair of the National Conference being held in St. John’s in June 2019.
In his spare time, Bob is an active curler and volunteer. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the St. John’s Curling Club and has been for more than 30 years, serving two terms as President. His interest in curling development has included positions on Provincial, Atlantic and National Boards, reaching as high as Vice-Chair of the Canadian Curling Association in 2014. He was a Co-Chair of the very successful Brier, the 2017 Canadian Men’s Curling Championship, held in St. John’s and was presented with the 2017 Volunteer Building Healthy Communities Award by the City of St. John’s for his efforts.
In 2014 Bob was inducted into the Governor General’s Curling Club. The Club recognizes Canadians who have made a significant contribution to curling locally, provincially or nationally, not only as competitive curlers, but also as builders and administrators.
A past member of St. John’s Progress Club, Bob still continues to assist with fundraising campaigns for the Vera Perlin Society and The Special Olympics.
From a young age Bob developed an interest in politics and spent many years behind the scenes. Now the time is right for Bob Osborne to step out of the sidelines and into the spotlight.
